Ramco Systems will set up operations in Melbourne to launch its ERP on Cloud, Analytics, Government and Enterprise Asset Management Solution in Australia and New Zealand ("ANZ"), focusing on the medium to large enterprises and state governments, the company announced today.
Ramco Systems is an India-headquartered specialist in cloud-based software services. It currently has 17 offices spread across India, U.S., Canada, Europe, Middle East, South Africa and Asia Pacific, and has established Ramco Systems Australia to spearhead its push to the ANZ IT market.
The company said it intends to set up a four- to five-person team in Melbourne initially and is also planning partnerships with telecom operators (telcos) and large system integrators to jointly offer its cloud-based offerings.
"Australia is a mature IT services market and the third-largest IT market in the English-speaking world," said Ramco Systems chief executive officer, Virender Aggarwal. "Australian companies have been early adopters of Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud technologies. We believe ANZ enterprises will be early adopters of Ramco's enterprise resource planning (ERP) on cloud solutions, which can be accessed via tablets and smartphones and offer rapid implementation and comprehensive functionality for running an enterprise end-to-end on cloud."
The company's ERP on cloud offering has been very successful in India where it has more than 3,500 users.
The company said in a statement that it will be marketing their offerings through key strategic partners in the region. "By offering a cloud ERP we can help Australian companies compete better as they need to now focus only on their business which can be run from anywhere as long as there is broadband connectivity and not worry about data centres, disaster recovery and heavy capital expenditure on licences, etc.," said Aggarwal.
